Rating Title/Year Author
2.5/4 Burlesque (2010) Sara Michelle Fetters Writer and director Steve Antin's first theatrical effort is hardly a total misfire, filled with too much fun stuff that goes down relatively easily for that to be the case. EDIT

2.5/4 The Dry Land (2010) Sara Michelle Fetters O'Nan's star making performance manages to hold things together even when the script threatens to tear them apart, while the emotional center of the picture rings with a moving truthfulness that can't help but hit close to home. EDIT

Milk (2008) Sara Michelle Fetters This is one of the most controlled, friendly, emotional and downright loveable performances [Penn] has ever given. EDIT

2.5/4 The Happening (2008) Sara Michelle Fetters In many ways, this ecological horror epic is one of the single nastiest and downright terrifying pieces of popular entertainment I've seen in ages. EDIT

3.5/4 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) Sara Michelle Fetters In other words, as the advertisements once said if adventure has a name, then it still - happily, thankfully, rapturously - must be Indiana Jones. EDIT

2.5/4 The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) Sara Michelle Fetters If returning to Narnia is going to keep feeling and looking like this, maybe Disney would be better off just keeping this series of books solidly closed. EDIT

1/4 88 Minutes (2007) Sara Michelle Fetters The simple fact is that this could possibly be the single most hackneyed, disjointed, illogically plotted and just plain stupid film Pacino, a cinematic living legend and easily one of our greatest living actors, has ever been a part of. EDIT

3.5/4 The Visitor (2007) Sara Michelle Fetters While elements of this are sad, at times even downright devastating, the film is ultimately a beating drum signaling the arrival of hope and inspiration. EDIT

2.5/4 Smart People (2008) Sara Michelle Fetters So I enjoyed the film. Maybe not as much as I would have liked to (or to the heights the filmmakers obviously hoped for), but that tends to happen from time to time and there really isn't any more to say about it. EDIT

2.5/4 Leatherheads (2008) Sara Michelle Fetters It moves in fits and starts and never finds the rhythmic pitter-patter of rapid-fire dialogue and energy it so desperately wants. EDIT

A Casa de Alice (2007) Nick Ardizzone Alice's House is Teixiera's first drama, but this isn't a fumbling freshman effort. Teixiera's years of experience filming documentaries gives him an excellent feel for reality. EDIT

2/4 Rambo (2008) Sara Michelle Fetters If there has ever been a film that showcases the hypocrisy of the Motion Picture Association of America more than Sylvester Stallone's Rambo I'm pretty positive I've never seen it. EDIT

2.5/4 27 Dresses (2008) Sara Michelle Fetters If 27 Dresses didn't have Heigl or Marsden I do not think I could come up with a single good reason for people to take the time to watch it. EDIT
